we didn't have favours as our party was so small. instead, as a thank you for coming to our wedding and as a souvenir if the trip, we made up personalized beach bags. we got the bags specially printed and filled them up with useful goodies. everyone got a nice beach towel, some inexpensive sunglasses to wear whilst doing beach activities (swimming with sting rays, jet skiing etc), a nice unisex lip balm, a traditional rum cake etc etc.ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1464039677.850033.jpg

we thought it was a nice touch and everyone got a cool bounty bag. it was cool seeing guests randomly throughout the trip with their bags, wearing the glasses etc.

How much did your wedding cost...
My mum organised our favours. We had a huge lollie buffet. And it was a hit! But they're actually super expensive to do.
We also had a wee basket of tubes of wild seeds by the door. They had ribbon and a note on them saying watch our love grow. There were 100 of them and we only had 11 left over at the end of the night (82 adult guests).. We had heaps of comments on the seeds, but I'm pretty sure it was only the women that took them 😉
I love favours haha!

From memory, our wedding all up cost about 17K. My parents paid for the reception which was 8K, and we covered the rest.
There were a lot of things I saved money on. I spent a great deal of time researching and planning. Had I not invested so much effort I think I would have spent a lot more on stuff that was either overpriced or simply not needed.

I couldn't for the life of me remember the specifics now, but approx $35k all up. The majority of that was location hire and food/bev package. We spent about $15k just there. But it was so worth it; the most beautiful and amazing day of my life and I don't regret a second of it even if we are still paying it off4 years later haha......

40 years ago, so I cant remember much of the details. I know the reception place is no longer standing, so that is sad. We had a reception for about 70, mostly family and a few friends. We had a bar tab that seemed to be gone mighty quickly. My dress was made by my sisterinlaw, a friend did the photos. It was quite a nice day, and nothing was so expensive. From memory, I think the cake was a bit expensive, and we hired two Mercedes that was a luxury item. We didn't go into debt for anything. marie.

We had 110 people at our reception, so all up we roughly spent about 18 or 19K.
We paid for everything except the bar tab (in laws paid for that). I paid for my Maid of Honour and Bridesmaid dresses, hair and make-up, but I asked them to pay for their shoes.
